Hi Iñaki

I took a fresch backup (see the settings) and repeated. Still the message is:
"Some problems were detected when checking user data (Trying to restore user 'alisa.sample' from backup file will cause conflict, Trying to restore user 'admin' from backup file will cause conflict)"

I unzipped the backup file. moodle.xml has admin in two places:
<BLOCK>
        <ID>175</ID>
        <NAME>admin</NAME>
        <PAGEID>23</PAGEID>
        <PAGETYPE>course-view</PAGETYPE>
        <POSITION>l</POSITION>
        <WEIGHT>3</WEIGHT>
        <VISIBLE>1</VISIBLE>
        <CONFIGDATA>Tjs=</CONFIGDATA>
        <ROLES_OVERRIDES>
        </ROLES_OVERRIDES>
        <ROLES_ASSIGNMENTS>
        </ROLES_ASSIGNMENTS>
...
      <USER>
        <ID>2</ID>
        <AUTH>manual</AUTH>
        <CONFIRMED>1</CONFIRMED>
        <POLICYAGREED>0</POLICYAGREED>
        <DELETED>0</DELETED>
        <USERNAME>admin</USERNAME>
        <IDNUMBER></IDNUMBER>
        <FIRSTNAME>Site</FIRSTNAME>
        <LASTNAME>Administrator</LASTNAME><code>
there are many users in the form
<USER>
        <ID>1610</ID>
        <AUTH>ldap</AUTH>
        <CONFIRMED>1</CONFIRMED>
        <POLICYAGREED>0</POLICYAGREED>
        <DELETED>0</DELETED>
        <USERNAME>angela.sample</USERNAME>
        <IDNUMBER>angela.sample</IDNUMBER>
        <FIRSTNAME>Angela</FIRSTNAME>
...

Why there are so many users in the backup?

Just to make sure, my original idea of a cleaning the Moodle from old information should work, correct?

Hi Visvanath,

Why there are so many users in the backup?

Because you told moodle to include the course users as part of the backup smile (see attached image).

Just select 'Keine' ('None') at they won't appear in the backup file at all. Beware this disables the backing up of Exercise and Workshop activities (in Moodle 1.9.x), as Moodle tells you in the next screen of the backup process.

Saludos. Iñaki.

How dumb! It clearly says "Users" and "User files".
:-\

The user collisions are gone.

I'm curious to know how user data bahave. Will let you know.

Thanks very much!
